What is the NAFD?
The National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) is the largest and most inclusive representative body for the UK funeral profession. In addition to over 4,000 UK funeral homes, it also represents international firms and suppliers to the sector
Established in 1905, the NAFD represents the entire spectrum of funeral directing businesses, including independent and family-owned firms, co-operatives and major funeral groups.
NAFD member firms must abide by the Funeral Director Code. Funeral home members are regularly inspected and supported to reach the highest standards of service.
The Association also provides access to an independent complaints scheme for funeral consumers, NAFD Resolve, operated on its behalf by the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR).
The Association represents the funeral profession at all levels of Government in respect of legislation and campaigns on issues affecting not only funeral directors, but also the bereaved. It provides informed opinion to Parliamentarians, Government agencies and consumer groups on all funeral matters.
